1 Bear, GregAnvil of Stars (inscribed & dated by the author). 26662
Legend: London. 1992.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel: sequel to THE FORGE OF GOD (1987). THIS COPY INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR IN YEAR OF PUBLICATION/''For David! All best wishes - Greg Bear Birmingham '92''.

''The Forge of God (1987) tackles the end of the worldD by confronting near-future humanity with a sequence of alien intrusions, one of which proves utterly and implacably fatal to the existence of the planet. The bulldog inexorability with which the author presents this scenario is darkly exhilarating, and seemed at the time a welcome prophylactic to the assumption embedded in most hard-sf novels that catastrophes, no matter how grave, will be sidestepped by the fit: a sequel, however, ANVIL OF STARS (1992 UK), somewhat softens the blow of the first volume by carrying a few human survivors in an alien ship on a revenge mission directed against the apparent makers of the autonomous weapons which destroyed Earth'' (John Clute/The Encyclopedia of SF).

2 Bear, GregHeads. 11182
Legend: London. 1990.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Short sf novel.

''a short novel, HEADS (UK 1990), set in something like the same Universe as Queen of Angels, concisely conflates a Moon-based search for the Absolute Zero of temperature and the threat that a cryogenically preserved head might turn out to be that of a 20th-century guru whose manipulative sect generations earlier proved particularly attractive in some sf circles'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

3 Bear, GregMoving Mars (Nebula Award Winner). 01450
Tor: NY. 1993.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel. Winner of the 1994 Nebula Award for best novel.

''is connected to the world depicted in Queen of Angels, is a broader and more traditional tale. Its depiction of Mars may lack some of the resolute arguments that accompany every speculative suggestion in Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars sequence, but Bear's novel gains a commensurate freedom of sweep in its story -- which intermixes politics and an array of scientific discoveries -- of the emancipation of Mars from the hegemony of a paranoia-driven Earth. The title, it may be fair to add, is meant literally'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
